Actual implementation will take longer than the two months
allowed. Getting started, however, is the key here.
3. Within one year, all institutions should complete their greenhouse gas
(GHG) inventory. This is a critical step because any specific actions
(including capital projects) that institutions wish to take toward climate neutrality
would be based on the priorities established in the GHG inventory (i.e.,
pick-off the actions that have the most impact first).
4. Within two years, all institutions should have completed their Climate
Action Plan with recommended steps (e.g., percentage reductions) to be taken along
the way, with specific milestone dates.
5. Throughout this process, the ACUPCC requires public reporting.
